The Senate voted Monday to confirm Miguel Cardona as education secretary, clearing his way to lead President Joe Biden’s effort to reopen the nation’s schools amid the coronavirus pandemic. Cardona, 45, a former public school teacher who went on to become Connecticut’s education chief, was approved on a 64-33 vote. Although his position carries limited authority to force schools to reopen, Cardona will be asked to play a central role in achieving Biden’s goal to have a majority of elementary schools open five days a week within his first 100 days.

PEN Investor Filing Deadline: Saxena White P.A., the Only Law Firm that Filed a Securities Fraud Class Action Against Penumbra Inc. Arising Out of the Company’s Misrepresentations to Investors Regarding the Jet 7 Xtra Flex Aspiration Catheter, Reminds Investors that the Statutory Deadline to File a Motion for Lead Plaintiff Status is March 16, 2021 SAN DIEGO, March 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Saxena White P.A. has filed a securities fraud class action lawsuit (the “Class Action”) in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California against Penumbra, Inc. (“Penumbra” or the “Company”) (NYSE: PEN) on behalf of all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired Penumbra common stock between August 3, 2020 and December 15, 2020, inclusive (the “Class Period”). If you purchased Penumbra common stock during the Class Period and wish to apply to be lead plaintiff, a motion on your behalf must be filed with the Court no later than March 16, 2021. You may contact David Kaplan (email@example.com), an attorney and Director at Saxena White P.A., to discuss your interests in the class action and your rights regarding the appointment of lead plaintiff. You may also retain counsel of your choice and need not take any action at this time to be a class member. As alleged in the Class Action, Penumbra and certain of its executives (“Defendants”) made statements to investors during the Class Period that were materially false and misleading in violation of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, and SEC Rule 10b-5. Specifically, the Class Action Complaint alleges that Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose material adverse facts regarding the safety of the Company’s Jet 7 Xtra Flex aspiration catheter, as well as the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. In particular, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that the Jet 7 Xtra Flex had known design defects that made it unsafe for its normal use; (2) that Penumbra did not adequately address the risk of Jet 7 Xtra Flex causing serious injury and deaths, which had in fact already occurred; (3) that the Jet 7 Xtra Flex was likely to be recalled due to its safety issues; and (4) as a result, Penumbra’s public statements as set forth above were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. The truth emerged through a series of partially corrective disclosures that caused Penumbra’s stock price to fall sharply, destroying over $1 billion in market capitalization and causing investors to suffer substantial losses.

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — The Biden administration is pulling back an environmental review that had cleared the way for a parcel of federal land held sacred by Apaches to be turned over for a massive copper mine in eastern Arizona. The U.S. Department of Agriculture said Monday that it likely will take several months to further consult with Native American tribes and others about their concerns over Oak Flat and determine whether the environmental review fully complies with the law. The agency cited President Joe Biden's recent memo on strengthening relationships with tribal nations, and regularly consulting with them in a meaningful way. The USDA and the U.S. Forest Service acknowledged they can only do so much. Congress mandated that the land be transferred to Resolution Copper no later than 60 days after the final environmental review was published. The document was released in the last days of Donald Trump's administration. Michael Nixon, an attorney for the Apache Stronghold group that filed tthe first of three lawsuits seeking to stop the land exchange, said the USDA's decision is welcome but doesn't have much impact without intervention from the courts or Congress. “Oak Flat is still on death row,” he said. “Essentially, they're just changing the execution date.” Dan Blondeau, a spokesman for Resolution Copper, said the company is evaluating the decision. The parcel of land in the Tonto National Forest east of Phoenix was set to be transferred to Resolution Copper by mid-March for one of the largest copper mines in the U.S. At least three pending lawsuits have raised concerns over religious freedom rights, land ownership and violations of federal law. Apaches call Oak Flat “Chi’chil Bildagoteel.” The land near Superior has ancient oak groves, traditional plants and living beings that tribal members say are essential to their religion and culture. Those things exist elsewhere, but Apache Stronghold said they have unique power within Oak Flat. The effort to protect Oak Flat has the backing of the Poor People's Campaign, environmental groups, religious liberty scholars, the National Congress of American Indians and others. Democratic U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva said Monday he would again introduce a bill to reverse the land transfer “to make sure this needless controversy is settled on the side of justice once and for all.” Gov. Doug Ducey and other Republicans have touted the jobs the mine could bring to Arizona. He said Monday he's “extremely disappointed” in the decision to slow progress on the mine. “An effective and predictable regulatory environment is a critical factor in Arizona's booming economy,” he said in a statement. “In Arizona, we follow what works. Undoing lengthy, comprehensive and already completed federal environmental studies on a whim with the changing of federal administrations doesn't work.” The land transfer was included as a last-minute provision in a must-pass defence bill in 2014 after it failed for years as stand-alone legislation. Resolution Copper would get 3.75 square miles (9.71 square kilometres) of national forest land in exchange for eight parcels it owns elsewhere in Arizona. San Carlos Apache Chairman Terry Rambler and environmental groups that also sued the U.S. Forest Service over the environmental review said Monday that they'll continue working to protect Oak Flat. Resolution Copper, a joint venture of global mining companies Rio Tinto and BHP, said it has invested $2 billion so far on the project but actual mining wouldn't start for at least 10 years after the land transfer. Eventually, the mine will swallow Oak Flat. Resolution Copper said last week that it hired a company partly owned by members of the San Carlos Apache Tribe to run a campground at Oak Flat and ensure access to trails after the land is exchanged and until it's safe for people to be there. “We will continue to consult and seek community input as we refine and shape the Resolution Copper project over the coming years, to minimize any impacts on Oak Flat,” project director Andrew Lye said.

Dominique Ducharme had a realization when he picked his up car from the Bell Centre over the weekend. Life — especially in hockey — moves fast. An assistant coach enjoying a certain level of anonymity when the Canadiens embarked on a recent four-game road trip, Ducharme was already five days into his tenure in the top job following the firing of Claude Julien once the team arrived back in Montreal. "It hit me that I'm coach of the Montreal Canadiens," Ducharme said of that parking garage moment of clarity. "It's special. It obviously changes for me." One thing that never changes, however, is the pressure in a hockey-mad province. "I was raised here as a Canadiens fan," added the native of Joliette, Que. "I knew when I was hired I'd have eight million assistant coaches. It's good, though. That's passion. "One of the reasons that makes playing in Montreal special is the passion." The changes in Ducharme's life he can control is the product on the ice. The Canadiens entered the season with sky-high expectations, and while they got off to a hot start, the club has produced just one victory in its last eight games. And it's up to a 47-year-old bench boss — he has the interim tag, at least for now — to get things back on track. "Lots of listening, lots of learning," Montreal defenceman Joel Edmundson said of the sessions with his new coach. "You've just got to be an open book every time you come to the rink." Ducharme wants his iteration of the Canadiens to play faster and with more purpose. Defensive zone coverages have changed from passive to aggressive, while keeping the puck instead of one-and-done attacks is a focus at the other end. "It's tough to come into a situation where you don't have a training camp where you can set your systems," Montreal winger Jonathan Drouin said. "We're trying to change things as we go. It's hard for him to change 10 things at once. It's too much info for players to grab." Drouin, who won a Memorial Cup with Ducharme in 2013 when both were with the QMJHL's Halifax Mooseheads, said communication is key with his old/new coach. With that in mind, Ducharme stopped Monday's practice and spent a solid five minutes explaining one particular drill when he didn't think the players fully grasped the concept. "He wants to make sure everything's clear (so) you're not thinking," Drouin said. "It's just go play hockey, be creative, use your instincts, but have a system. "It's easy to play hockey that way. I think it's going to just get better and better when we start figuring out the systems. It's going to become habits for everyone and it's going to be easier to just play." Montreal blew a 3-1 lead on the way to losing 6-3 to the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday in Ducharme's NHL coaching debut, but there was lots to like about the rematch 48 hours later following a practice and morning skate where class was in session. Despite losing 2-1 in overtime to stretch its current winless streak to five (0-2-3), the Canadiens dominated much of the night. Shot attempts were 78-38 in Montreal's favour, including an absurd 45-8 at 5 on 5 over the final 40 minutes, while scoring chances stood at 17-1 in the third period. "We took steps forward before the last game," Ducharme said. "We weren't perfect, for sure. But our goal is to take that and be even better." Montreal started the season 7-1-2 and was atop the all-Canadian North Division before dropping eight of the last 10 games, including three of four to the lowly Ottawa Senators — defeats that likely cost Julien his job. "We're going through some adversity," said Edmundson, a member of the St. Louis Blues when they changed coaches before winning the Stanley Cup in 2019. "It's good to experience adversity. "It makes you a stronger team down the line." While the Canadiens showed life in Manitoba, some issues run deep and might not be fixable in a few practices. Heading into Monday's action, the club ranked 18th on the power play, 22nd in penalty killing and 28th in faceoffs. But Ducharme said he's already "ahead of schedule" with a lot of what he's looking to implement — especially at 5 on 5 — as the Canadiens prepare to host the Senators on Tuesday. "I thought it would be longer on a few things," he said. "Our guys really care. They care, they're buying in, they're all in and they're really committed." The power play is now in the hands of former NHL winger Alexandre Burrows, who was promoted from the AHL's Laval Rocket when Julien and associate coach Kirk Muller were let go. The 39-year-old scrapped and clawed his way to the big time as a player, eventually finding a spot alongside future Hall of Famers Henrik and Daniel Sedin on the Vancouver Canucks' top line. "He has a great energy for every guy that comes to talk to him," Drouin said. "It makes you bring that energy out. He's been doing a great job. He (was) a smart player. You don't play with the two Sedins for that many years without being smart. "It's nice to have that experience." Ducharme said the goal is to have his players act and not react to what's in front of them. "We create a habit, we create that something that it becomes an instinct, it becomes second nature," he said. "We're trying to get that going and I think it will impact the pace of our game and the way we play as a team and how in sync we are." Ducharme's life has changed immeasurably over the last week. Sunday was the first time he's had a chance to take a break and reflect. "It happened so quick," he said. "Relaxing a little bit, it was a good thing. I needed that. Everything was so intense for three days. "It was a little bit crazy." And it's only just begun. This report by The Canadian Press was first published March 1, 2021.
